Maybe the Girl Scouts should adopt a pay-as-you-go policy when selling cookies.

The Girls Scouts are pursuing 12 court claims in Akron, Ohio, for uncollected cookie money ranging from $54 to $3,500. The claims total $9,000.

The Scouts say the deadbeats, all adults, picked up cookies and signed for them.

One alleged deadbeat says most of the $3,500 debt involves cookies she gave to others to sell. She agreed to pay the debt in $100 monthly installments.

The other alleged deadbeats could face judgments or have their wages seized.
